The Two Thrones
Empress Celene I
The Empress of Orlais
The current Empress of the Orlesian Empire, the creators of Dragon Age have compared Celene I to Catherine the Great.
Within her country, some claim that, at the age of 17, she organized her uncle’s assassination and then outmaneuvered three older cousins in a contest for the throne, avoiding death twice.
Celene is an amateur scholar and her patronage of education and the arts has led to a cultural renaissance in her empire.
